Plump orange mejillones from the coast of Galicia are a favorite in the bars and restaurants of the region. Arroyabe captures the fresh taste and tenderness of just cooked mussels in their canned gourmet mejillones.

They are prepared with a vinegar and paprika marinade that adds a little zing to their flavour. Serve as a tapa with toast or crackers.

In Spain, mussels are farmed off the Rias, the cool tidal rivers of this northern Spanish region. Only the finest mussels are selected to be prepared by Arroyabe, and each tin is packed by hand.

The seas off the coast of Galicia in Northwest Spain are cool and rich in nutrients, making them an incredible fishing ground. Arroyabe are located in Bermeo, a famous fishing village in the Basque Country. Their facilities are very close to where the seafood is harvested, so they are able to use the freshest fish, squid and shellfish available.

The Source


During the nineteenth century the products produced in the valley such as wine were exchanged with fresh fish from the Bay of Biscay through what is known as the wine route. Rufino Arroyabe Ruiz de Azua began selling fresh fish on the plateau through this bartering system. In order to keep the fish fresh and in the best possible conditions en route to its destination, he would pack it with ice as he passed the Gorbea mountain. The year was 1898 and after several years of selling these products, Rufino Arroyabe decided to build a cannery and combine it with a winery. In those days, all fish was canned and preserved by salting or brining, which is how Bonito tuna in brine originated. With the help of his son, Rufino Arroyabe, added new products to the initial product line and the production process was improved until they achieved high quality products with an exquisite flavour. In the 1960’s they business moved to a new facility in the town of Bermeo, abandoning the winery and focusing on the canning of Bonito tuna and Cantábrico anchovies. The business also began to try out new products such as canning fish in olive oil (up to that point they only canned using brine). In 1996, they built the current factory in the outskirts of Bermeo which enabled them to combine technological innovation with traditional preparation. The new facility enabled them to increase production in order to meet consumer needs.
